Here is a great first day of school idea using Osmo! In this workshop, students get to experience taking a self-photo and sketch out their own self portrait. 1. Students will start by taking a selfie with the iPad. 2. Teacher demonstrates choosing an image to draw from the camera roll and changing the visible lines. 3. Students begin tracing their photo and drawing a self portrait. For more ideas on how to revolutionize your classroom with Osmo, visit: www.playosmo.com/...

1st Day of School activity - Students' Jobs AND Teacher's Jobs!
Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity. We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom. - Great idea!

I like this idea instead of CLASSROOM RULES- which can be so intimidating. You can use your own rules and I think it could be used for any grade level. You can also change the title to fit "Bucket Fillers" theme.

Dead Poet Society quote and inspiration to use a larger vocabulary
My high school English teacher secretly let us watch, Dead Poets Society and it awakened every student in the room. This teacher was one of the best I've ever had, because he was genuinely passionate about teaching, learning and growing as a human. He didn't show us this movie to rebel against anyone, but yet to expand our minds and open us to the world could be.

Love & Logic: Change the wording of what you ask the kids to do and become more effective. This is true of working with adults as well.. It's all perspective. This is how I was taught to classroom manage and it is way more effective than any other program. No more stupid rewards, just high expectations from the start.

I would like to use this for classroom management during my lessons. It lists statements that students may use in place of the phrases "I can't" or "I don't know." This would definitely contribute to an encouraging and positive classroom environment.

Four corners post-its, one from each student, then they create the best answer in the center. Great group activity.
Four corners post-its, one from each student, then they create the best answer in the center. They could do something where they work on a math problem and then decide which is the best or correct approach and why. Would be great for small group discussions over classroom novels or short stories.
This is a good idea to make sure students are all adding their own ideas and participating in group work. Students write their ideas on sticky notes and then answer as a group in the middle. An alternate to think pair share.
Hand out stickies in several colors. Kids write answer. Find other students with same color sticky. Create a best answer from all ideas and write in middle. Runde's Room: Five For Friday - Test Prep and Angry Birds
